Now there is a gannet flying past on the Skomer page. The gannetry is on Grassholm another little island in the group off south west Wales, you can see it from Skomer. Stokholm is the third and if you like islands there are lovely books about Stokholm by Richard Lockley. I love gannets, the masked riders of the sky. Their dives are spectacular as they fold up like a fan and plummet into the sea.
This is an older piece from a few years back. We have seen them in Scotland and in the Scilly Isles. We saw them at a distance in Wales, easy to spot once you know their characteristic shape and black wing tips.
I have started a summer concertina book. The aim is to have one for each season and a box for each one. The summer one will have shells and sea birds on.
